This is an exciting opportunity to work with the Edinburgh and West Lothian Greens campaign team to help us run a successful election campaign for the upcoming local elections in May 2022. We are aiming to elect at least 12 councillors in the City of Edinburgh Council and at least 1 councillor in West Lothian Council - our most ambitious local election campaign plan to date.
The Local Elections Campaign Coordinator is a key post in the election campaign. It requires exceptional organisational and team-working skills and the ability to work under pressure with competing priorities.
The Local Elections Campaign Coordinator will provide overall coordination and organisation for the campaign, working closely with our campaign team of volunteers, our Green candidates, and our local teams and our various volunteer-led working groups. They will also have a role in helping to communicate to our Edinburgh and West Lothian members, with local media and to the wider public.
Location: The person will need to be based in or near Edinburgh. The position will be remote working, with opportunity to work in the Scottish Green Party Office in Leith, should covid rules allow.
